were heard. just hours ago, janet napolitano went to staten island to view the clean-up and she assured the island's residents they have not been forgotten. >> we know that staten island took a particularly hard hit from sandy. and so, we want to make sure that the right resources are brought here as quickly as possible to help this community, which is so very strong, recover even more quickly. >> brian todd is live on staten island and brian, what is the situation there tonight? >> erin, the same here is still one of devastation. you've got scenes like this behind me. this house on cedar grove avenue and many others like it. either completely levelled or in a condition that's thot much better than that. this neighborhood has seen some signs of life, of hope, after a couple of days of just real despair and feeling cut off at the lack of relief agencies here. we've had new york city bulldozers, sanitation trucks, dump trucks here clearing off this neighborhood. the national guard was on the ground all day today and there have been some shelters set up a little less than a mile from here

fema and janet napolitano was on the ground. those are all important steps at the very least symbolically for the residents of this neighborhood who have felt cut off. they're still kind of angry that it took so long to get here, but fema and the red cross are on the ground right now, so that's a positive step. the thing to remember, the fema facility, red cross, they're about a mile away from here. a lot of the people in this neighborhood don't necessarily know they're there because they have no tv, no internet, no phone service. little cell service, so word of mouth isn't getting around to quite as many people as maybe as those who could use that facility over there. so that's still a challenge for the red cross and fema to serve people inside this neighborhood and get aid to them when people don't necessarily know they're only about a mile away. >> thank you very much. as we said, so many were frustrated, but they're there now trying to help. a lot of people there have trouble communicating. a these are areas where there's a lot of poverty and that's something that is simi

question about new york city. you spoke with the homeland security secretary today, janet napolitano. >> yes. >> are you worried about new york given in a sense it's vulnerable right now. >> listen, i have great faith in new york and commissioner kelly and mayor bloomberg, but no, we have to be concerned. this is the most devastating natural disaster to hit new york, the subway system is shut down, bridges and tunnels shut down. i was born and raised in new york city, my father was a city cop for over 30 years, never underestimate the spirit and vitality of new york. new york will come back stronger than ever. >> it sure will. i believe that and i think everyone around the world is rooting for that, too. chairman thank you four why are time. >>> still to come we showed you the president touring the damage caused by sandy with new jersey governor chris christie. the governor had a lot of praise for the president. could the president's response affect election day? >>> and the loss of power created a very strange sight around our truck. [ man ] hello!!!! hello!!!! [ all ] ohh! that is crazy! a
